This is covered in the owner's manual. You can't use the solution, but you can clean the razor without it.
For a quick clean, press the buttons on the sides of the head to release the foil-- but don't remove it. The foil pops up just enough to create openings at the ends of the cutter block. Turn the shaver sideways, hold it over the sink or trash can, and run it for a few seconds. Click the foil back down into place.
For a thorough cleaning, remove the foil and clean the block and foil with a brush (such as the one included with the shaver), then reinstall the foil.
Good luck finding the the base. If you give up the search, I do see that they're available separately for far less than the entire package.

This is a common problem for older cleaning bases. The part is worn out. You will need to replace the upper housing of the cleaning base. You will find this item available at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
If the arm on the charging stand no longer locks down into place to charge the shaver, you will need to replace the arm or you can replace the entire charging unit. You will find both items at shaveroutlet.com. See links below<br />

I had the same problem. Press the blue button to make the "head" of the charging mechanism pop up (probably already stuck this way), then pull it up slowly but firmly. It should pop out with little difficulty. Keep pulling it up until you've removed the entire head from the charger, but make sure you don't pull far enough to yank out the wire that attaches the head to the charger base.
You will expose a spring housed in a white tube on the base of the charger. Pull out the spring, then reassemble. The head won't pop up automatically anymore, but you'll be able to pop it up by hand--an easy tradeoff for a working clean and charge!
